Thanks for that interesting reply and suggestion. I am not quite up to
the level of script replay as it is rather beyond my capabilities at
this point. I did read up on script replay at the link below.

http://www.linuxinsight.com/replaying-terminal-sessions-with-scriptreplay.html

BTW, I did read the LFS FAQ and turned off HTML. I am not sure what
you are  receiving on your end but HTML is turned off in this google
gmail (at least in this particular email instance). Please let me know
(anyone) if the HTML link (above) is delivered in good form as
requested by the LFS FAQ titled, "What about netiquette?".

I do need to re-read the above link again before script replay begins
to sink in. I just wanted to let you know that I do read your emails
and absolutely appreciate all suggestions.

Thank you
Wally
